S2 Ep. 9: Beth
Show Notes

In this episode, Sarah and Louise discuss Chapter Nine of  “Journey of The Adopted Self” by Betty Jean Lifton and then they speak to Beth Figuls.

Beth Figuls is a technical writer and aspiring novelist/memoirist from Los Angeles. A Baby Scoop-era adoptee, she was raised by a father who was also an adoptee, and who had lived in an orphanage for a time when he was very young. She searched for and found her birthmother, as well as siblings from both sides of her birth families. She strongly believes that adoptees have a right to know who they are. She is very interested in exploring intergenerational trauma, loss, and adoptee personhood in her memoir-in-progress.
